Bridge Neighbourhood Plan Committee Information Event - 21 jan 2017
Bridge Neighbourhood Plan Committee is holding an information event on Saturday 21 January 2017 from 10.00 am until 1 p.m. in Bridge Village Hall to which all villagers are invited. Members of the committee will be present to discuss any aspects of the plan which can be read in full here.
The event will consist of 3 displays: one showing the open spaces which are likely to be included in the Plan ( comments on these will be most welcome). The second will show views of the village from different directions. Villagers will be invited to express their views on those views which they would most like to see protected in the Plan. There will also be a display of the proposed village design statement, which it is hoped will form part of the Neighbourhood Plan.
Villagers will also be able to discuss a recent report received from a planning adviser on the Neighbourhood Plan. This can be read here and here.
The results of a traffic survey (conducted from 10-17 Jan) in the High St may be available also.
Please drop in whenever you can to find out more and to ask any questions you might have on the plan and also to make any comments which you wish the committee to note.
An account of the Neighbourhood Plan process was outlined on the village website (www.bridgevillage.org.uk) in a post dated 16 December 2016. It can also be read here.
Villagers may also be interested in statistical information about the village which has recently been acquired by the Neighbourhood Plan committee. It is available here.
So please make a note of the date and time and the members of the committee will be pleased to talk with you about the Neighbourhood Plan.
The committee (which is an advisory committee of the Parish Council) is composed of 3 parish councillors (Sue Hodges, Alan Atkinson and Rosy Atkinson) and 7 other villagers, Joe Connor (Chair), John Hill, Terry Wilmshurst, Christobel Seath, Kathy Walder, Mervyn Gulvin and Esther Hall (who also takes the minutes). The membership of the committee was confirmed by the Parish Council on Thursday 12 January 2017.
Monthly meetings of the group are held in the Hunter Room and are open to the public. Agendas and minutes are posted on the parish noticeboard next to the White Horse pub and in the planning section of the parish council pages of the village website www.bridgevillage.co.uk
